A robust and powerful chainsaw ideal for freezing conditions.
As well as the M-Tronic engine management system, the MS 362 C-M VW has a heated carburettor and heated handles, making it perfect for long sawing sessions in cold conditions. With a choice of 16 inch (40 cm) or 18 inch (45 cm) cutter bars available.
Enhancements for working in the cold
If you are likely to be working in freezing conditions, the MS 362 C-M VW has some essential enhancements that really make it stand out from the crowd. Firstly, by changing the saw from summer to winter operation, the intake air is pre-heated over the engine fins, ensuring that the carburettor does not ice up and that you can continue working in freezing temperatures. On top of this, the handles of the machine can be heated, providing additional comfort in cold weather, by engaging a switch on the left handle as required.
Intelligent & efficient performance
With STIHL's fully electronic M-Tronic engine management system, consistent engine performance, superb acceleration and a constant maximum speed are assured. It also provides cold/warm start recognition, starting with fewer pulls and allows the engine to immediately accelerate up to speed. The Ematic chain lubrication system provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and reduces bar oil consumption by up to 50 percent. This model also uses a HD2 filter to trap even very fine particles, and is also very easy to clean.
Easy & comfortable operation
The MS 362 C-M VW uses anti-vibration technology so that you can work for longer in comfort. It dampens the engine's oscillations to significantly reduce vibrations at the handles. STIHL's ElastoStart system also works with a decompression valve to minimise the shock on your joints and muscles caused by the compression of the engine during starting, as well as reducing the amount of force necessary to pull the starter cord. Tool-free filler caps make topping up the petrol and oil simple, and the chain tensioner is positioned on the side of the machine to remove the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
